British Canoeing Performance & Leadership courses at Glenmore Lodge
Performance awards – 2 & 3 star
The 2 Star award is a generic award which focuses on the fundamental paddling skills for canoeing and kayaking on sheltered water. It is also a pre-requisite for the BC Paddlesport Instructor Award. The 3 Star award can be accessed with or without the 2 Star and is a discipline specific award which is designed to show that the paddler can competently paddle in moderate water conditions. We offer the 3 Star award for White Water Kayak, Freestyle, Sea Kayak, Canoe, Surf Kayak and Touring.
These have been rebranded by British Canoeing from 4 & 5 star awards.
These awards are discipline specific and focus on personal performance, safety and leadership in sheltered, moderate and advanced water conditions. The paddler will be in a position to lead groups for their club, friends or within a centre. A specific safety course is also required prior to progressing on to the assessment for some of the awards. We offer training & assessments in White Water Kayak, Sea Kayak, Canoe and Surf Kayak including the specific safety courses.
